According to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, titanium-contained sand is mainly found along the coast from central Thanh Hoa province to the northern area of southern Ba Ria -Vung Tau province.

 Up to 83% of the sand are found in Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan and the northern area of Ba Ria - Vung Tau.

Experts said the resource of titanium sand ore in Viet Nam is very large, ensuring long-term, sustainable supply for the processing industry.

Under the approved plan on exploring, mining, processing and using titanium ore for the period of 2007-2015, with orientations towards 2025, the regions of titanium mining include Thai Nguyen, Thanh Hoa - Ha Tinh, Quang Tri - Thua Thien Hue, Binh Dinh - Phu Yen, and Binh Thuan - Ba Ria - Vung Tau.

For the period of 2016-2020, the titanium ore mining and processing industries will be established, providing such products as titanium slag, gigment, titanium sponge, and titanium metal.

Binh Thuan will be developed into a large-scale titanium ore mining and processing centre that helps meet domestic and export demand.
